Google has started phasing out "I'm feeling lucky" - instead dumping people on their search results page then forwarding them to the first result or simply performing a regular search. Personally I hate this as one of my favourite things about Firefox is having a separate address & search. This allowed me to perform "I'm feeling lucky" in the address bar when I know where I want to go but am too lazy to remember/type in full urls (ie: search for "duck params" is faster than typing in https://duckduckgo.com/params
) and still maintain the ability to do a regular search in the search bar.
I immediately went looking for an alternative, and DuckDuck was top of the list, unfortunately other than manually adding \ to every one of my location bar searches there is no way I could find to configure DDG to separate the search functionality between the two fields (or use any of the params/syntax without delving into the search.json file).
DDG's "I'm feeling ducky" is also a bit awkward as it hangs up on redirect blocking in Firefox for a second or two before actually forwarding. Also doesn't get much love: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=I%27m+feeling+...
